Good one Strat. I have a poster of this up in my brewery lab. Great shirt for wearing to brew fests.

I'd love to get that T-shirt; any idea if it's still in production?

Edit: found one source for it myself: http://www.beershirtz.com/

I imagine its still in production. I bought mine at a brew fest in Booneville, Ca.. Try a search for the "Beeriodic Table". Here is an Amazon one.

Cool, saw you found one. Great for beer/chem geeks.

Ya, label approval can be a tricky buisness. Those folks at BATF have no sense of humor.

A current fav beer of mine is Alaska Brewing's Baltic Porter. Great recipe, although a tad rough being young. Will be excellent with some aging.

I'd buy a couple if he is selling them! Been making beer for years. Going to make a Mirror Pond clone beer tomorrow or Tuesday. Had a good harvest of Cascade hops this season.

Here's my ugly self with my latest IPA creation. Maris Otter Pale Malt, a little Crystal 20, Northern Brewer, Fuggles, East Kent Goldings in the brewpot. Fuggles dry hopped in the secondary.

Sorry for the lack of head. I bottled this for Christmas giveaways for a few friends. It's only been in the bottle for 6 days.

Nice beer to clone. The Mirror Mirror is well done too. Seems they worked out the diacytl problem.

Here is a cool tid bit about Sierra Nevada's early days.

Sales Take off in Mid-1980s
Gradually sales began to grow in Chico, where the large population of students at California State University had a healthy thirst for beer. Distribution was later extended to San Francisco, where the beer was discovered by Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia. When word got out that Garcia loved the firm's porter, many of the band's loyal fans began to seek out Sierra Nevada's beers.

When I saw the BK Trio in Eureka, Ca. he was drinking a Sierra for the first set, then a beer I brewed for the second set. Good to know at least one of the boys appreciate fine craft brew.

Here is an all time fav of mine.

And these Scottish brewers are content with a one word slogan.

4.5% alcohol??

I expect more from the Scots.

SkullSplitter. Now there's a great Scottish beer name.

I couldnt agree more. 4.5% is more a 60 schilling brew. I much prefer the 90 shilling Scotch Ale this time of year. Roasty, caramel, chocolate, and a touch of peat for that winter warmer.
